Before I go on I just have to say, OMG Zoe is going to be 9!!!! How can that be?
OK, so I asked Zoe to write down a few things that she wanted for her birthday for me and to tell family when they asked. In truly Zoe-fashion here is the list she came up with:
This list makes me laugh in so many ways. Probably my favorite thing is the title:
I've opted to fulfill wishes 2, 4, 6, 9 (Yes, you're reading that correctly, she is looking for a paperback copy of Moby Dick. I managed to find an abridged and illustrated children's version.) and 12 (we have an old-fashioned gumball machine in our basement that she would like to have in her room).
I think Ima (Zoe's name for my mother) will be handling request #5 -- a trip to Build-a-Bear. Whoever invented Build-a-Bear is a capitalistic genius. That is one of the biggest money-making schemes I have ever seen. Ima already took care of #8 this past weekend, that's why it is crossed out.
Speaking of capitalistic genius, can't you just hear the commercial in item #3, the Vectron Wave? I love that she includes the price plus shipping and handling. Not something you're going to ask your sister-in-law or your mother-in-law to get, now is it?
About the only easy item on the list to pass to a family or friend is #1 (a game for the Wii for those of you that don't know) and maybe #7.
I do love that kid.
